The pain and loss of Jame's residential school experience follows him until, years later, Lauren returns, giving him hope for the future. But the damage may be too great. Lauren makes a pact with him that will lead to either death or redemption: confront the demons that haunt him and stop killing himself with guilt or be prepared to forego a life with her and his son, Edwin.
Edwin, mired in his own pain, tries to navigate past the desolation of a fatherless childhood. As James tries to heal himself, he begins to realize that, somehow, he may save his son's life- as well as his own. When father and son finally meet, can they heal their shattered relationship, and themselves, or will it be too late?
